Abel to Yzerman

Good Day, Mr I.  Now Keep It Going. We’ll Even Live Blog It For You.

Hey St. Louis, weren’t you in the running for Prince Fielder?  Gosh. Just not your best week.

It’s relevant because Mr. I’s a Wing, and he’s a Tiger.  Mike Ilitch had himself a day like he used to have back before Gary Bettman ruined the NHL with his idiocy, his Cap that doesn’t work, a lockout that accomplished nothing and the Streisand wardrobe he wears in private consultations with Brian Burke.

I can’t confirm that so, for the sake of the Empire, I take it back.  That last part.

Honestly, this day has tired me out.

It’s an Original 6 classic, one that should occur four times per year. That could have happened up until three weeks ago, when Gary killed the realignment. Oh yes he did. 

Hockey’s best team, guided and molded by hockey’s greatest coach, led by the best defenseman in hockey history and backstopped by the best goalie on earth, plow into Montreal and in honor of the occasion…

...It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

Wings get a PP right after MTL typically commits a penalty after scoring a goal.

Make it count, Wings.

Pierre has to know that in the context of this game there is a problem with saying #___ in red.  Right?

If things go as usual, we still need another GA before the end of the first with a PP at the starty of the 2nd.

We don’t talk about these things. Shush. Besides, we’ll have a Suter on the top line, I’d a reckon.

Helm needs to marry a Nordic woman just so he can have a little finish.

Uggh. Well, we are on plot. Now there needs to be a fighting major that will lead to a Wings PP. Cue the Death Stare.

Typical 1st NHL goal scored against the Wings.

Rookies scoring their first goal against the Wings has to be some king of record.

Who didn’t see this coming? No Lidstrom, on the road, last game before the break, and no respect for a vastly inferior opponent…

So Bertuzzi checks a guy a few feet from the puck and than grabs it, it’s interference.  Anyone else does the same thing it’s a hockey play?
